As Clementine Bell has learned, running a successful NYC patisserie is tougher than it looks. Even with training in classical French baking from the best school in the world, getting people to walk through the doors to the Clementhyme Bakery proves much more difficult than drawing millions of viewers to her sensational baking vlogs. 
With the overdue rent piling up, Clementine's mother has the idea to enter her into a televised baking competition with a staggering $250,000 cash prize. Clementine isn't thrilled with the idea of competing on national television, that is until the producers let slip that her infuriatingly talented pastry school classmate and rival has been invited to participate. 
Sequestered on set in a partially renovated chateau in southern France, all of Clementine's knowledge of pastry is put to the test, but can this pastry purist outlast her competition to save her bakery in an arena where the culinary arts have become a spectator sport?

Baking is my passion and whenever I see baking books on Wattpad, I squeal. Mentally of course. Out loud would just be weird.

Oh, I'm already having that problem. That's why I go to bed after 4am and I'm always cleaning the kitchen. 50 muffins don't go baking themselves,unfortunately. I'm even scared of getting my next bill. 🙈

I usually watch the Holiday Baking Championship on Food Network with my mom, so hopefully my endurance is up for this book. However, worst comes to worst, I might just bake another batch of macaroons... Dang it, my mouth's already starting to water...

This just sounds perfect. I like to think I am above a good possibly cheesy story, but in reality who is? I love this already and I hope you made it into the top 25.
